I have a trip booked to Kenya with my boyfriend and parents in September and have a free day to spend in Nairobi. We would like to do something for the day but not do too much or travel a great distance as we would like a bit of relaxation time at the hotel after our long flight and before our safari begins.
We were thinking of visiting Daphne Sheldrick’s Orphanage, which we understand is open for just 1 hour everyday and also the Giraffe Centre. We are stopping at the Serena Hotel in Nairobi and wonder if anyone could give me advice on how far it is to these places and also the best way of doing it. Should we book a driver and does anyone have any recommendations or should we try and book it through the tour company we are going on safari with, which is Somak?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
